s2e10 History of Prints The Italians (MarcAntonio Raimondi)

s2e10 History of Prints The Italians (MarcAntonio Raimondi)

MarcAntonio Raimondi, Raphael, Veneziano, and Diana Scultori


In series 2 episode 10, co-hosts Ann Shafer and Tru Ludwig continue talking about Italian printmaking in the 16th century focusing on MarcAntonio Raimondi, Agostino Veneziano, Giulio Romano, and our first female artist, Diana Scultori. They take a deep dive into MarcAntonio's Judgment of Paris (after a drawing by Raphael), from which Edouard Manet extracted the figural group for Déjuener sur l'herbe. Plus, the 1527 Sack of Rome changes everything.

Images discussed are below along with their credit/institution.
